Adenophora remotiflora / Sobana ソバナ

 
Adenophora remotiflora, a perennial herb inhabiting somewhat damp, cliffy spaces in hilly districts, grows 50-100cm in height. Stems lean at upper parts and sparsely branch. With long petioles, leaves are of alternate phyllotaxis, oval or broad-lanceolate, 5-10cm long, 3-8cm wide, somewhat thin and soft, with coarse serrations on margins. The leaves on the upper parts are small-sized and lack petioles. Flowers sparsely set themselves in panicles on stem tips and droop down. Light blue-purple corollas are bell-shaped with tips spreading out, 2--3cm long, and lobes somewhat bending backward. Calyx lobes are in a lanceolate shape with entire margins. Bloom time: August-September.
